Heya @Ian - not sure if this is feasible or whatever but one thing I noticed is that sometimes I only open a thread to see what the OP has posted. For instance the current 'From Dion Lewis' snapchat' thread.

I hovered over the thread and the preview just said [ IMG] . Had it shown the image I wouldn't have loaded the thread, which would have presumably saved some bandwidth and server resources.

I dunno, it's not a huge thing but if it would be possible to see the image or twitter post when previewing a thread it might save you some bandwidth, if that sort of thing matters. Ok thanks for reading my thread, I tried my best.

It's a good suggestion, I'll take a look at the software to see if it's something that's easy to implement. Server is running better now so we're definitely in better shape from that standpoint, but purely from a user experience standpoint it's a good idea since it obviously helps get a better handle on the thread :cool:

Is there a way to turn the thread preview feature on and off? It works on my work computer, but from home doesn't work. Actually it worked for about a minute on my home computer after it recently updated, but other than that I never get to thread preview.
